Since the Trump ordered attack on Syria the world haws gone mad…..some with atta boys and others with condemnation…..but the loudest so far has been that of Lil Kim in North Korea…..
He so enjoys flaunting his search for nukes and a deliver system and the recent Syrian attack has him thumping his chest like a sex crazed primate….
President Trump may be considering putting American nuclear missiles in South Korea—or even assassinating Kim Jong-un. Military and intelligence officials tell NBC News the National Security Council has presented Trump with options on responding to North Korea’s refusal to curtail its nuclear program. The options all represent big changes in US foreign policy. The US removed its nukes from South Korea 25 years ago; putting them back would be the first time US nuclear weapons were located overseas since the Cold War. Another option—apart from the assassination of North Korea’s leader—is sneaking special forces into North Korea to sabotage its nuclear program and abilities.
The options would be considered if China doesn’t successfully put more pressure on North Korea. And one intelligence official tells NBC he doesn’t see a diplomatic solution forthcoming. Trump has vowed to keep building defenses against North Korea, prompting a North Korean ambassador to threaten the “most ruthless blow” if the country is provoked, News.com.au reports. “We have the readiness and ability to counter any challenge from the US,” Kim Hyong-Jun says. Meanwhile, South Korean officials say North Korea appears ready to unveil a new intercontinental ballistic missile during a huge military parade planned for April 15, according to UPI.
The Kim clan has been a thorn in Washington’s ass for decades….from grandfather to father to son…..lots of bravado and speeches.
There is a wealth of opinions on how to handle this situation….most are from fucking amateurs that would not know a solution if it bit them on the Johnson.
There is a wealth of “options” flying around the heads of the Trump-ites……
Ongoing reports about President Trump seeking “options” for handling North Korea suggest that, with the administration having already declared diplomacy a “failure,” all options amount to some massive US escalation on the Korean Peninsula.
…..reports were emerging that one of the big “options” being advanced was for the United States to start deploying nuclear weapons into South Korea, a move which would both confront North Korea, and doubtless be seen as a massive provocation by nearby China.
But there’s always an escalation beyond every escalation, and US intelligence chiefs appear to have settled heavily on one, pushing the idea that the United States should just outright assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and also kill a number of other senior leaders.
Assassinate? How about that how has that played in the past?
The peak of outrage against government-sponsored assassination was the mid-1970s, when the Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations — better known as the Church committee — spent more than 60 days questioning 75 witnesses about C.I.A. plots of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Back in the darkest days of the cold war, the agency had devoted significant resources and creativity to devising unhappy ends for unsavory or inconvenient foreign leaders. Among those listed for assassination were Patrice Lumumba of the Congo, Ngo Dinh Diem of South Vietnam, Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic and, most famously, Fidel Castro of Cuba, who survived no fewer than eight C.I.A. assassination plots. The senators on the committee were intent on divining the full extent of the government’s role in these plots. How much direct authority, for example, did Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy exert over them? The committee’s conclusions were vague at best. The truth was that neither president would have allowed his hand to show in such affairs.
Let’s say we assassinate Kim….what would follow in North Korea?
We may not like the little turd in charge but it might be a good idea to take a long look that the consequences from this action.
